Beyond Organic is our philosophy that Shaklee quality standards go beyond how and where an ingredient is grown. We look to confirm the purity and potency of ingredients AFTER harvest to guarantee that the final finished product is free of hundreds of chemical contaminants.
We screen for more than 350 contaminants, pesticides, and impurities on every new botanical ingredient – three times more than U.S. Pharmacopeia standards.
More than 100,000 quality tests conducted per year to ensure our products are pure.
WHY DOES SHAKLEE GO BEYOND ORGANIC?
While we encourage all consumers to purchase organic produce and ingredients, it's important to remember that organic is a means of production; it's not a guarantee that the food is clean and free of chemical contaminants. Pesticides and herbicides – even when safely applied – can run off into unintended areas and farmland.
That's why our approach is to work with the finest suppliers and to go above and beyond to verify the safety, purity, and potency of the ingredients we use after harvest.
The safety of you and your family is our highest concern. And our Beyond Organic program guarantees the highest standards of safety.
